Interaction with guests
We live on site and are normally there to welcome you and available if there are any issues. We can help with recommendations for walks, pubs etc but try not to bother you unless you need some help. We are anxious that you raise any problems with us so we can do our best to help, sort out any issues or find a solution as so often small problems are left and only raised at the end of peoples holidays when we could have sorted them out very quickly. It also makes sure our next guests do not experience the same issue.

Many thanks for the review. We know wifi is an issue but have not solved it yet as the main source is too far from the Cottage. We like to view it as a benefit sometimes as you might get to talk to the children...More

About the neighbourhood
At the heart of one of England’s most beautiful regions, Woodcombe Lodges is ideally placed for the glorious countryside of Exmoor National Park, the Quantock Hills and the North Devon coastline. At the same time, Minehead with its seafront, harbour and wide range shops, pubs, restaurants and local bus services is only 1 ½ miles away. In a tranquil rural setting on the edge of the National Park, Woodcombe lodges stands with outstanding 180o views from the sea on one side overlooking Minehead and the approaches to Dunster through to the wooded slopes of Exmoor on the other. Watchet’s harbour, Dunster with it’s castle and medieval Yarn Market, the picturesque villages of Selworthy and Allerford, Porlock and Porlock Weir harbour, and the attractive resorts of Lynton and Lynmouth are all wit...
Getting around
We are a 20 minute walk through the parks into Minehead where there are buses to Taunton, Lynton and Bridgwater which can drop you in town or various villages on the way or even pick you up at the end a walk. There are plenty of taxis in Minehead and a dial up bus service the Moor Rover which can take you out onto Exmoor and the Quantocks for walks etc. The West Somerset Steam railway runs out of Minehead and can take you along the coast to Watchet and all the way to Bishops Lydeard some 24 miles through lovely countryside and many small villages.
